MAGA

Irish Ruler Goddess

First Lady of the Red Branch

A daughter of Aengus the Love God. She married Ross the Red, who founded the Red Branch of which Cúchulainn was their most high and mighty champion. Perhaps he was strong enough to fell an entire redwood, not just lift a single branch.

It seems that the Red Branch may have inspired the Knights of the Round Table. Merlin likely had something to do with this, he gets in everywhere else.
